    Thanks! I'll take a look today if I can. I have a coupon burning a hole in my pocket. That polish would be the perfect thing to use with it.

    Didn't you just get that polished delivered? How long did it take you to paint your nails? I did a mani/pedi with Malice. It took me yesterday and today to finish. I did my pedi yesterday and my mani today. I'm so slow! I have to do a couple of nails over because they have imprints on them from my clothes.

    i use seche vite. im a pro at doing my nails. once i went to a salon to buy a polish and the asian guy wanted to hire me he went nuts when i told him i do them myself. i told him i was a junior in high school and that i didnt have a license to do nails hahha and couldnt go to beauty school. he didnt want to let go of my hands. i use lots of polish since i was 13. my dad would buy me one almost everyday when i moved here to the states. my nail polish addiction is my fathers fault!

    I have Seche Vite but I was trying out another top coat. I'm switching back. I love having my nails done, but I'm not consistent. When I don't do them for a while it takes me forever. I get faster the more I get back into doing them. But then I get super busy again and slack off. Then the cycle repeats itself.

    yes the more you do them, the better you get at it. i just cut my nails really short cause i want to try the nail treatments that i ordered from butter london to see if they really help. but i dont think i could ever change seche vite.

    I *really* need an alternative to Seche Vite because I'm sick of it. I love that it's so quick-drying but I hate the amount of shrinkage it causes. Seriously, it looks like I have visible tip-wear pretty much instantly if I use this top coat! Also it thickens so badly, so quickly, and I resent having to buy ANOTHER product (Seche Restore) just to make it useable again

    Oh, and the bulk of my Butter London order got cancelled and refunded so I'm in a foul mood today! Might need to do some online retail therapy...

    Is Poshe fast drying like Seche Vite? I experience the same issues as rubytitania. That's why I was experimenting with a different top coat.

    Yep! I still prefer SV over it but it's good for people who don't like shrinkage.

    Those of you that are experiencing shrinkage.. do you wrap the tips of your nails w/SV as well? I noticed that stops the shrinkage for me.

    I wrap the tips, but I'm not consistent with it. I need to repaint my left hand. I'll use Seche Vite and will make sure to wrap the tips.

    Awesome NOTD's ladies!

    I'm currently looking for another top coat myself. I've been using the OPI one lately, and although i love their polishes, their top coat really blows. The stuff just doesn't dry It literally takes hours to harden, and the layer i apply isn't even that thick or anything Might give the Seche Vite one a try.

    A true red ? Maybe this one

    http://www.vampyvarnish.com/wp-conte...-Shiny-Red.jpg

    Source : VampyVarnish

    The OPI Germany collection is beautiful.

    Or one from the Fired Up collection from Orly ?
    Or one from the China Glaze Holiday collection " Joy " ?
    Or Dior Marilyn from Grand Bal collection which is very pretty

    I think I found the perfect black with glitter? ANyway, this one looks gorgeous. Can anyone compare Zoya versus Butter London in quality? Are they both pretty good in terms of wear without chipping?

    Here's my ever growing list of Chanel polishes. I started buying them only a couple of months ago in September. I'm still trying to get more shades. I don't know how unique they will be to you since you have a large nail polish collection

    Chanel " Vertigo" maybe ? Amazing colour I think, almost black I would say
    Or Dior " Diva" which is black with golden sparkles ( very pretty packaging for Holiday ).
    A true black would be the Nars one ( from the Andy Warhol collection )

    I don't know if you have the same Chanel polishes in the US. Vertigo is pretty, Coromandel too ( a pretty orange red ), Pirate is beautiful as well ( more a true red ), Frenzy is easily wearable and soft, Rouge Carat is great but was launched last year ( Holiday 2011 ) I don't know if it's discontinued in the US, it is here in France, what else ?
    OPI Oktoberfest and Germanicure are unique I think, no Chanel polish is similar to the 2, Chanel Vendetta maybe ?
    I would recommand Rouge Noir of course but is it available in the US ? For us here it's a must-have, very dupable now though.

    I hope this was helpful !

    All of those Chanel shades you mentioned are still available in the US except for Rouge Noir. We have Vamp instead. But there's a website in the US where you can still buy the color.

    Although I love butter, I think Zoya polishes are more consistent. I've never had a streaky or bad zoya polish and I have over 30 zoya's. They usually last 5 days with no chips. I love the way storm looks I'm just waiting on another promo so I can get a few other colors.

    I agree, Zoya nail polishes are really good ( have just 2 of them ), they wear very long too.
